Comprehensive School Health

Healthy Children & Families

Comprehensive School Health (CSH) is an internationally recognized approach to building healthy school communities. We know that it can improve health and education outcomes in children 6 to 18 years.

Health Promotion Coordinators support Alberta school boards in using the CSH approach to improve healthy eating, active living, and positive mental health.

The team works with school boards to:

  • help determine needs and develop action plans
  • support school health teams and school board staff
  • support the development and implementation of health and wellness policies
  • promote the use of the Alberta Nutrition Guidelines for Children and Youth
  • offer professional development and health and wellness resources
  • build community connections
  • support schools to get funding for health programs or projects
  • create, evaluate, and distribute resources
